Let's Make It
Beat first 5 ingredients in large bowl with mixer until blended. (Batter will be thick.)
Spoon into 24 paper-lined muffin cups.

Prepare using sweet pink moscato champagne.
How to Pipe Frosting
For an extra-special presentation, pipe frosting onto cupcakes. Insert a start decorating tip in pastry bag. Fold down top of pastry bag about halfway, forming a cuff. Spoon enough frosting into bag to fill halfway. Unfold cuffed top and twist bag until it meets level of frosting in bag. To pipe, hold bag firmly and squeeze from top of bag, keeping bag twisted to prevent frosting from leaking out from top of bag. If you don't have a pastry bag, you can use a resealable plastic bag instead. Spoon frosting into bag, then cut piece off one corner of bag. Twist top of bag as directed, then use to pipe frosting onto cupcakes.
Substitute 1 cup water and 1 tsp. additional champagne extract for the champagne used to prepare the cake batter.
